Epimedium 'Caramel' is the superb wild-collected introduction from Asian plant guru, Dr. Mikinori Ogisu of Japan. Epimedium 'Caramel' represents the same un-named species as Epimedium 'The Giant', which was introduced in error as a form of Epimedium wushanense. The narrow, toothed foliage adorns the stems of the 1' tall x 2' wide clump. The stem terminates in massive clusters of flowers, each composed of large golden yellow inner sepals, highlighted by a small caramel cup and small white outer sepals. This is truly one of the most stunning epimediums you'll ever see.
